Because Wikipedia notability, in many people's minds, needs more than
simply "backing it up." Society's idea of notable is fluid and depends
what you're talking about - Wikipedia's
got a small but vocal number of
people who feel notability is constant and defined only by who says as
It's why there needs to be a distinction - "not so notable" or
notability" is a false concept that only
exists in that small but vocal
group. It has little in the way of a basis in reality, and is not
by anything that is logical.
"Notability" has no divinely-ordained, objective definition that can
be logically deduced. The definition of "notability" changes according
to how much the person using the word wants an article to be deleted.

It may be, but it shouldn't. It should be based on facts, not someone's
deletion opinions. The result based on those facts may differ, though.
